Something "fishy" with pet store shipment

The owners of a Philadelphia pet shop know the difference between fish and fishy and what happened Monday night was decidedly in the latter category.

Something "fishy" with pet store shipment


The owners of a Philadelphia pet shop thought they were getting a regular shipment of exotic fish on Monday night, but what they ended up with shocked the store's owner...and the family of man who had recently succombed to Alzheimer's disease.

The store, Pets Plus USA, was expecting a load of fish to be flown in to Philadelphia Airport on Monday night. But the store's owner said he got suspicious after finding out cargo handlers at the airport had loaded up his driver's Jeep with a whale-sized box. "We've never gotten a seven-foot box of fish," Ray Arabia told his brother, Mark.

 Wondering what happened next? Read the story by my colleagues at the Inquirer, Howard Shapiro and Barbara Boyer.
